I agree that we should not pick an entirely new design.
Here though, option D does not pick an entirely new design.
It explains what (if we approve option D) is our objection to option
A/B, explains the small fix and rules on that basis.
If that's too close to design work; if you actually want the TC to only
choose with no comment from the options before it; if you want us not to
raise objections and actually set policy as we are charged with in the
constitution, then you will find absolutely no one willing to serve on

Fuck no! There's no sanity in the length this process has taken within
Things are not working here; we have some real problems, and we are not
responsive at least in my opinion.
On that at least we can agree.
